State releases new child care learning standards

The Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning has posted the 2014 Infant, Toddler, and Pre-Kindergarten Learning Standards for Early Childhood.

Pennsylvania’s Learning Standards for Early Childhood are research-based according to age and development, and form the foundation for curriculum, assessment, instruction and intervention within early care and education programs.

The 2009 standards have been revised to reflect current research-based content and integration, and to align with the Pennsylvania Core Standards.

All state-funded programs will have one year to transition to the 2014 Infant, Toddler and Pre-Kindergarten Standards.

Required implementation of the standards begins July 1, 2015. In the meantime, all programs are encouraged to download and print the 2014 standards by going here.
